Bill sent me a copy of Ultimate Alliance (Marvel) for my b-day and man, is it great. Last night we even found a place called "Murder World" which featured a minigame based on the original Atari 2600 Pitfall! game. There was another based on Breakout. The sheer nerdiness of the dialog and trivia really make this one a must-play for comic book junkies. I thought I knew a little something about the Marvel universe, but apparently I'm just a crusty noob. Though Elizabeth was terrified that I got as many of the trivia questions right as I did...! I thought everybody knew the Black Panther's costume was made of vibranium!

I enjoyed Dead Rising 2 much

I enjoyed Dead Rising 2 much more online co-op than Marvel: Ultimate Alliance, which seems to be a bit better for me local play.

It's mostly been the wife and

It's mostly been the wife and I, though Bill and I did a bit of adventuring. The sucky thing is both Elizabeth and I need Xbox Gold to be able to play with Bill. Only I have it ATM, and she doesn't want to "waste" the money (sigh).

I really hate it that Microsoft nickles and dimes you so bad with this shite. I mean, come on...

That game was quite popular..

That game was quite popular.. did you ge the wife to team up with you? or are you and Bill super hero teaming(does it have co op online?)? who is the sidekick? :) With the 360 there are alot of Downloadable characters (most of any system) too (hulk is kind worth it, Venom is just a match for Spidy)

Raven Software did that I believe, it kinda revitilized them, unforntalty UA II didnt do as well, not sure why. great games both, lots of fun.
